For some inspiration on what to write, here’s what other travellers to Bhutan have to say about the magnificent Kingdom:

“Bhutan is a place unlike any other I’ve ever visited. I did not know much about the country before travelling to Bhutan but I left wanting to return to see even more. The best time to visit Bhutan is between October and December when the air is clear and fresh with sunny skies. March and April are also a great time to visit as the climate remains dry and pleasant; plus the famous rhododendrons bloom spectacularly in late spring flooding the valleys with stunning colours.” — Linda, Germany

“When I was on the plane leaving Bhutan, I turned to my brother and asked if he’ll visit Bhutan again, because I was trying to get an answer out of myself too. At that time, just like him, my answer was ‘Not in the short term.’ I was truly missing my comfortable life in Singapore, the ease to inhale deeeeeeply, and my super comfortable bed. Add to the fact that I’m a city girl… Soon after returning to Singapore, memories of Bhutan kept popping into my conscious and semi-conscious moments. It’s like a dream that you wake up from, laughed at because it was hard to believe, then carried on with your life, and wondered if that dream was real. Did I really go to Bhutan?… Now, I yearn so much to head back to Bhutan, to take in more of it. For now, I can only continue to dream about Bhutan and use the law of attraction to make the wish come true.” — Kristine Li, Singapore

“When I looked at the world map during my childhood days, I always wondered what kind of country Bhutan was, stuck between 2 great empires, China and India. I had thousands of questions just by looking at it. What does the Bhutanese look like, what language do they speak, how do they live their lives, and what kind of landscape furnishes the country? Now after being here, exploring deep into the mountains and seeing the city life of its capital, thousands of those questions have been answered. A month is definitely not enough to really understand the country. It's only an introduction, nothing more.” — Zahariz Khuzaimah, Malaysia

“It’s beautiful and serene here in the highlands. The light combs through the trees and leaves friendly rays on the blooms, every acre of Bhutan filled with a warm promise. Springtime in March is traditional festival time in Bhutan, the community gathering in twos, threes, even tens and more to watch colourful dances with bold and bright masks and costumes. The music rings loud; the mood stays light.

Four years ago, we landed in her warm but dry summer, just in time to work the potato and buckwheat farms with the local farmers, and hike through her numerous valleys and pastoral lands. And during our first trip in the frigid winter of 2014, we experienced the infinite warmth of locals who introduced us to suja (Bhutanese butter tea) and opened up their kitchens and backyards to cook fresh hot meals. Thanks to our partner, Druk Asia, we have been blessed to be able to visit this fabled destination thrice.” — Anna, The Soup Spoon

I have read many travel guides for Bhutan over the years but Ashley Chen and Joni Herison’s gorgeous BHUTAN TRAVELOG is the absolute best. It’s beautifully researched, with the most relevant and detailed information about every inch of this magical country that only true insiders know.
